Kanada hat jetzt äußerst scharfe Fluggastrechte …

Kanada hat sich Fluggastrechte gegeben. Sie ähneln und erinnern verdammt an die EU Fluggastrechte.

Ein Teil der Fluggastrechte gilt mit 15.07., ein zweiter Teil erst mit 15.12.2019. Man muss sich also derzeit noch immer ansehen, ob diese speziellen Passagen schon heranzuziehen sind. Prinzipiell sind alle Flüge von und nach Kanada betroffen.

Hier die interessanten Passagen:
